  • “AI should not pretend to be human”

    without realizing it? This is not very likely today. One reads again and again about machines that order pizzas or make appointments over the phone. Such systems are generally not suitable to serve the masses. Certainly, dialogue robots are already

  • Holidays on Mars?

    the astronauts watched a TV series on a small, portable computer that looked like a tablet. Samsung has also accused Apple of having copied the design of the iPad from there. The man who invented the first mobile phone: Martin Cooper from

  • German researchers develop skin for robots

    have fully equipped a human-sized robot with an artificial skin. The human-sized robot to which the artificial skin was applied is called H-1. It is equipped with 1260 cells and more than 13,000 sensors on its torso, arms, legs, and even on the

  • Intelligent bra to detect breast cancer

    among women between the ages of 40 and 50. Worldwide, an estimated 627,000 women died of breast cancer in 2018, and approximately one million new cases were diagnosed. In Switzerland alone, some 6000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer last year

  • Smart sanitary napkin monitors premature birth risk in pregnant women

    which are then analyzed by the micro-sensor system. Only when the napkin is removed is the data transferred via an app to the patient’s smartphone and to her gynecologist. The reliability of the test is very high, David Baud stated:
